Alexandria, Va. (August 23, 2022) – As part of an ongoing plan to offer improved programs for its members, Helicopter Association International (HAI) is seeking sources for safety risk management, training and certification, and flight data management services. Interested respondents have until September 6, 2022, to seek clarifying information, and the deadline for submission of responses to HAI is September 23, 2022.
HAI surveyed its members to determine the tools small businesses want to support safety while generating growth. As a result, HAI has begun developing a safety tool chest for members that includes SMS programs for operators and maintenance providers, an aviation safety action program, and SMS program training. HAI is also conducting its own internal evaluations, developing strategic initiatives designed to support the vertical flight industry through communications, advocacy, safety, business tools and expansion, and workforce development.
Through this latest request for information, HAI will assess potential industry partner solutions and value-added services that can help elevate safety and drive peak performance. Respondents to this request for information (RFI) are encouraged to view additional information on this project on HAI’s website.
Services under consideration may include the following:
- Safety Risk Management: HAI is considering expanding its Accreditation Program of Safety (HAI-APS). Services under consideration may include, but are not limited to, third-party safety risk management coaching, consulting, and assessment services.
- Training and Certification: HAI considers education and training to be vital in the continued professional development of operators in the vertical lift industry. Services under consideration may include, but are not limited to, development, delivery, and management of learning content; ground instruction; flight instruction; initial and recurrent training; and evaluation and certification services.
- Flight Data Monitoring (FDM): HAI strongly supports the use of FDM programs across the vertical lift industry. Services under consideration may include, but are not limited to, delivery or management of FDM systems, flight operations quality assurance (FOQA) services, education and training services, and related data collection, storage, review, and analysis services.
